Booked table for 20+ hour prior (18.00 hours), arrived to table set, ready to order, staff where friendly and helpful (Spanish speaking), food was perfect. TV with no sound to catch Olympic highlights. Music quiet... perfect evening to finish off Iquitos.

There are many chicken restaurants in Iquitos. El Rancho has provided consistent quality and great flavor! Good value.

A good place for pollo a la brass with chauffeur and some juice. It's cleaned and decent- they have an air conditioned room. Probably the best of the surrounding chicken places on the adjacent corners of the street.

I ate here on the first night in town. I had a great roast chicken. The best I had in Iquitos. The service was great and the waiter worked with me and my bad Spanish. I would highly recommend this place

Decent restaurant located just a block off of the Plaza de Armas. Most of the menu was different cuts of beef, fish and chicken, but every table around us was eating pollo a la brasa (which isn't on the menu). We ordered pollo a la brasa and it was delicious. I would return here again, but it wasn't anything spectacular... More

It's about 11 soles for the chicken dinner here. The best roasted chicken I had while in Peru (except for Pardo's Chicken in Lima). Only a couple of blocks from the main square.
